As we anticipate the fullness of the presence of Christ, we join with the church throughout the world, praying for all who are in need.
A brief silence.
We pray for the church and all messengers of the gospel, for all who call upon the name of the Lord, and for congregations throughout the world. We pray that you Lord will work through us to bring harmony and reconciliation in this trouble times. Lord our God, we are your children, who come before you and stand in your presence. Be with us and be our light in all situations of life, in all hardships and grief and in all our joys. Let us pray. Have mercy, O God.
